Founded in 1896, the Alabama Girl's Industrial School offered young women an advanced educational experience. Gradually, the school transitioned into the Alabama Girls Technical Institute in 1913 and Alabama College in 1923. The final changes in name and mission occurred in 1969 when it became the University of Montevallo, Alabama's four-year public liberal arts institution. The University of Montevallo is a member of the prestigious Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges.
